Dr. Timothy Bailey, MD, the Institute’s director, said, “Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can affect the heart, eyes, nervous system and kidneys if blood sugar is not properly controlled. This study is targeted at people currently taking metformin and offers a free trial of an investigational medication that may better control blood sugar levels and produce better patient outcomes when taken along with metformin.”
Participants must be 18 or older and be taking oral metformin to treat their type 2 diabetes. Qualified participants will receive study-related doctor’s visits and evaluations and study medication at no cost, and may be compensated for their time and travel. Because the treatment is free, participants do not need medical insurance to qualify.
